Fire protection engineering applies scientific and engineering principles to protect people, property and possessions from the destructive effects of fire and smoke. Fire protection engineering services are essential for all building types and uses, both in the United States and abroad.
For more than 30-years, architects, engineering firms, building owners and developers, state and local building officials, and safety professionals in both the private and government sectors have selected Protection Development, Incorporated (PDI) for the critical task of fire protection engineering. Our fire protection, life safety, and construction code solutions can be found in manufacturing, warehousing, refining/chemical, healthcare, historical, and educational occupancies. PDI’s licensed professionals and certified technical staff critically evaluate fire hazards and design problems, and offer technically sound, cost-effective solutions. We understand the nature and characteristics of fire, the products associated with combustion, how fires originate and spread within and outside of structures, and how fire can be detected, controlled, and extinguished.
PDI’s licensed fire protection engineers have gained national and international recognition through groups such as the Society of Fire Protection Engineers (SFPE), ASTM International, and National Fire Protection Association (NFPA). PDI technicians, who specialize in concentrated areas of work such as sprinkler and fire alarm design, are specifically accredited by organizations such as the National Institute for Certification in Engineering Technologies (NICET).
